Whitepaper: Fragmentation

by D3DataJan 01, 2008

The word fragmentation means that something is broken into parts that are detached, isolated or incomplete. There are two types of fragmentation: File fragmentation means computer disk files that are not whole but rather are broken into scattered parts. Free space fragmentation means the empty space on a disk is broken into scattered parts rather than being collected all in one big empty space. Fragmentation occurs on every running computer except a diskless system a system with pre-formatted, Read-Only disks (like a CD-ROM server), a system that is turned off (expensive doorstop)
